Roku Screen Mirroring Windows PC, Android, Ios, Iphone, Ipad, Tablet

How To Add & Connect PC, Android, and iOS To Roku Screen mirroring.

This step-by-step guide will detail Roku Screen Mirroring and show how to cast android, iOS, and Windows devices to your Roku device.

Roku Screen Mirroring is a great way to stream and display content on your other devices directly to your TV.

Using the Roku screen mirror feature is a fabulous option for casting Streaming Apps and more to your Roku device.

Because Roku does not have “open-source” capabilities, users cannot install various apps and APK’s that you might be able to on devices such as the Firestick.

Using an Android device or Windows PC is simple to screen mirror to Roku and can be done directly from the home-screen.

However, iOS devices do not have the same compatibility and require an additional step.

This tutorial will provide Roku Screen Mirroring for 3 devices: PC, Android, and iOS.

NOTE: In the guide below we are using a Roku Streaming Stick+. However, this method will work for most versions and variations of Roku devices.

The following steps must be done prior to casting any device to Roku.

- From the main menu of your Roku device, click Settings.

- Choose System

(This will force Roku to Prompt a notification when a device tries to cast to your TV)

- Open your Windows PC and launch Settings. Click Devices

Roku Screen Mirroring from iPhone/iPad

Screen mirroring an iOS device such as an iPhone or iPad to a Roku device is a great way to cast content directly to your TV from your mobile device.

Roku recently added an AirPlay option within the settings of the device which makes casting to Roku a breeze.

Before, users could only use the Roku Remote app or various installed apps to cast to their device.
